Well visitors to the Abbott Library in in Sunapee New Hampshire may soon have some more breathing room when it comes to parking. Work began last Wednesday on expanding the parking area at the Abbott Library by K.A. Stevens and Sons Construction based out of Newport.
Since the opening of the New Abbott Library last fall there has be a nearly 80% increase in visits and 120% increase in the number of library cards issued.
With these increases the current 25 space parking lot has been full on many occasions. The new parking area will have spaces for 40 more cars and the work should be completed around the first of November.
Money for the parking lot expansion came from funds left over from the construction of the new library when it came in under budget.
